Almost as bad as the "reality" crap being shown here in the US (with the possible exception of Chef Ramsey).

"Reality TV" isn't even reality. I am becoming more and more disillusioned by current tv. Why don't we have variety shows on anymore, like "The Carol Burnett Show"? The closest thing we have is American Idol which in my opinion is so fixed, it's not even funny.

TV is crap these days. The only thing good on cable these days is Turner Classic Movies, the problem is the fact that I have to pay for all these other channels that I don't give a damn about to get it.

Not only is TV crap now, but we here in America are actually paying to watch commercials. We have hundreds of channels, but the majority of the programming is infomercials and or so-called paid programming. Oh did I forget the shopping channels. I can' t understand why people continue to watch.
I am a Retro type of guy; in the good olds, when a commercial came on thats when people grabbed a snack, took a bathroom break or just tuned out. Strange Strange Strange

The only good thing on televisions here in the USA is the "off" button.

If I wasn't married there would be no cable in my house at all. I have it only for my wife's benefit.

Isn't this odd? The only reason we have cable is for my hubby!! I could spend the rest of my viewing time watch all the stuff i've downloaded from IA!!

Yeah, I would miss sports... but I'm sure I can get my tennis and golf fix by actually going outside and PLAYING!! I really do want to learn how to play golf. Tennis looks like too much running, and my knees won't handle that, but golf looks like it's a heck load of fun!

It is fun but be careful and get some instruction first. If you do not get instruction for your swing in your long and short game, you develop severe shoulder and upper back problems that could lead to surgery.

Not to mention beaning some poor guy with your ball (but then that could be good for a couple of giggles!)

Oh yes, I will get instruction. One of the sales guys here at work also teaches golf, so he will help us out.

but the idea of cracking someone in the head makes the game much more enticing!! (just ask my hubby about me and video games. I keep shooting people until their head disappears.)

You're going out for the wrong sport, Lynn. Why don't you you try something gentler like- boxing or full contact karate
(just kidding). Have fun with it and enjoy it.

Because, my goal is to see how many golf courses I can get thrown out of!

Funny Lynn, funny. If you play by the rules and replace your divots, you won't get thrown out.

And there lies the problem. I do not play by the rules, and I have never been known for my divit replacing skills.

The Daily Show and Adult Swim. That's it for me.
I've a still-growing stack of 60+ home-made DVD's, a mixture of IA material and MST3K I get from YouTube. That's 95% of what comes out of my TV.
Movies are just as bad. Sci-Fi? Flash, Bang, Boom...just an excuse to get to the next CGI shot. Humor? Fart jokes. Romance? Some pussy-whipped guy that finally whines his way into some supermodel's pants. Horror? Overbearing heavy-metal and CGI gore. Mystery? Suitable for Scooby-Do, not intelligent adults.
All great entertainment comes from a leader with a vision: Orson Welles and Gene Roddenberry come to mind. Although a creative team can accomplish wonders, they need guidance. Committees make crap. Politically correct, socially aware committees make EVIL crap.
Thus endeth the sermon.
